Dad Update

It's just after noon on Saturday.

I spent the night at the hospital with Dad. He's resting comfortably, and his body is starting to shut down. Our best estimate is that he'll pass on in the next 24-48 hours.

He's mostly sleeping, but occasionally awake, and I think aware, even though communication is really hard. I just keep telling him it's okay to go, and that he doesn't need to be scared--that everything is going to be okay.

Since I've been up for 29 hours now, I'm going to crash for a few hours, and then go back to the hospital. Thanks for all of you with us in your thoughts and prayers.

Peace be with us all.
